We all learned this morning that G4's own correspondent Jessica Chobot, star of X-Play, Attack of the Show and Feedback, will appear as Diana Allers, a reporter, in the upcoming sci-fi RPG Mass Effect 3. She'll join Martin Sheen, Freddie Prinze Jr. and other big stars in the game.
“It's a dream come true. I’m excited, stoked and honored. I’m seriously in 7th heaven," Chobot said. "It's cool just because it’s in a video game, but it’s also for one of my favorite companies of all time, Bioware, and in one of the most epic series of all time, Mass Effect 3."
Chobot says the sight of herself as a virtual character was a bit of a shock at first. "You're just not used to seeing yourself like that," she explained, "I have huge chipmunk cheeks. I hope I don’t look like a chipmunk in real life...and the butt and boobs are impressive. I wish I had boobs like that, and the butt is quite large. I hope my butt is not that big, but I’m happy that everything looks very firm in the game."
Given Mass Effect's popular romance features, I had to ask her: Will gamers be able to have a meaningful, romantic space-relationship with Ms. Chobot?
"Last I heard, I am one of the 'romanceable' characters in the game," Chobot said. "I think you can bring me on the Normandy, I think you have the option of kicking me off too. I’m not sure if that’s before or after you romance me, so we might have a Jersey Shore moment. I think you can romance me with a man or a woman. We’ll see when the game comes out," Chobot added.
When asked whether she planned to "romance" herself, Chobot said, "Oh, I’m gonna give it to me so hard."
Jessica will be appearing on Feedback, right here on G4tv.com, tomorrow to discuss Mass Effect 3, the week's video game news, and more, so point your brower here at around noon tomorrow! Mass Effect 3 comes out for the PC, PS3 and the 360 on March 6, 2012.
